Common names: Weeping Fig, Benjamin Fig, Chinese Banyan
The weeping fig is a popular and elegant houseplant that has the potential to grow into a small tree in your space. Native to Asia and Australia, this plant likes a warm and humid environment and lots of filtered bright light. Whether you go home with the classic weeping fig, a braided version, or a variegated variety, this plant will be an impressive and beautiful addition to your space. Since this variety of weeping fig has variegated leaves, it will want a very bright spot in your home in order to keep the white from fading to green.
Light: Bright Filtered
Pet Friendly: No
Care: If your weeping fig is dropping leaves, it could be a case of too much water, too little humidity, moving around too much, or an infestation of houseplant pests. Don't let your weeping fig stand in water (this can lead to root rot), give it some extra love with misting or a spot near a humidifier, and check the undersides of its leaves for signs of bugs if it looks less than healthy.
